In general (and in practice this is a bit messy), each variable is supposed
to be either set by the user in mk.conf or in a package makefile.
MAKE_JOBS=n is for mk.conf, and MAKE_JOBS_SAFE=no is for individual
packages.  I don't understand why you would want to set
MAKE_JOBS_SAFE=yes in mk.conf; if any documentation hinted at that it
would be good to fix it.
